The other day I broke out my N64, Pokemon Stadium 1 & 2, and my old Gameboy Pokemon games, just to see if the old save files were intact. The files saved to the N64 paks and red, blue, & yellow were still there. The gold, silver, & crystal files were gone. The batteries in those paks had died. Most of my old super team died with them. Potentially I could restore them with an old file copy device I may still have, but the paks can’t maintain a save file long enough to transfer the critters anymore. Not that I need, or want, to do that. I kind of want to see if I can crack open one of the Pokemon paks and replace the battery. I don’t know what kind of screwdriver I would need, or where to find one. I know they exist. I’ve seen them, but never owned one. I mean, I’ve moved on to the new Pokemon games. I don’t need to do any of that. I just think it would be fun to tinker with.
